Chair Entertainment’s Infinity Blade is an elegiac masterpiece, an iOS exclusive and a system seller that showcases what’s possible on Apple’s iOS platform better than any other game. Unbelievable console-quality graphics, great soundtrack and atmosphere, complex weapons and upgrade system with RPG elements to keep you coming back for more all contribute to it being one of the best iPhone and iPad games money can buy.
The original game recently went free, as did the second installment which normally costs $6.99 and was yesterday named IGN’s Free Game of the Month. As for Infinity Blade III (a $6.99 download for the iPhone and iPad), the substantial Soul Hunter update from a month and a half ago brought us a bunch of new items and goals and an all-new quest that includes a new location and a new enemy, the Deathless Bloodmage.
But that was just warming up as Chair has announced that the upcoming Ausar Rising update will be even bigger. Due next week, the update will let you revisit the original Infinity Blade castle and explore the origins of the Infinity Blade protagonist.
More on that, plus a teaser video, right after the break… Read More

Infinity Blade has long been a so-called system seller, an iOS masterpiece meant to highlight the power of Apple’s iOS platform by taking the GPU inside your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to its limits.
Developer Chair said in July that Infinity Blades: Dungeons had been canceled due to internal reshuffling that saw the company focus on the third installment in the series, Infinity Blade III.
Apple during its iPhone 5s/5c keynote last month invited representatives from Chair to demo the game on stage. In a quick follow-up, Chair then posted a trailer video and this morning the game surfaced on the App Store, ahead of the expected iOS 7 release later today… Read More

I’m not sure how it happened, but somewhere amidst all of the excitement yesterday, we completely neglected to talk about the new Infinity Blade game. For those who missed it, Apple brought Chair’s Donald Mustard up on stage during its iPhone event to introduce Infinity Blade III.
The move, of course, was to help Apple show off the power of the iPhone 5s’ new A7 processor, but it was a big moment for Infinity Blade fans as well. After the ‘Dungeons’ title was canceled, the future of the franchise was uncertain. But Chair put all those concerns to rest yesterday… Read More

Following months of silence, Chair co-founder and Creative Director Donald Mustard announced last month that ‘Infinity Blades: Dungeons’ had been canceled. Rumors about the game had been bouncing around since it debuted onstage at Apple’s iPad 3 event.
But it doesn’t look like fans are going to have to mourn the title’s demise for very long. According to a Senior QA Tester’s LinkedIn profile, Infinity Blade-creator Chair looks to be in the middle of either development or beta testing a sequel to the popular game… Read More

Last March, Epic Games president Mike Capps took the stage at Apple’s iPad 3 event to show off Infinity Blade Dungeons, the studio’s third iteration in the popular series. And true to its predecessors, the game looked stunning—especially on the iPad’s new Retina display.
At first sight, Dungeons had the makings of a hit. But then came the disappointment. After several months of silence, Epic announced last fall that the game would be delayed until 2013. Then it was put on hold. And now it sounds like the whole thing’s been scrubbed… Read More

Infinity Blade is arguably one of the most popular gaming franchises on iOS (aside from Angry Birds and maybe Real Racing). First released in 2010 by Chair Entertainment and Epic Games, the action role player pulled in some $1.6 million in its first four days.
The game was popular enough to spawn at least one sequel, Infinity Blade 2, and possibly a third. Still don’t get what all of the hype is about? Well now’s your chance to investigate, because the title that started it all was just discounted to $0 for a limited time… Read More

According to Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney, the iOS-exclusive Infinity Blade series is his company’s most profitable game ever. And for the sake of meme completeness, Infinity Blade is more profitable than Epic Games’ Gears of War, a lucrative military sci-fi shooter franchise for the Xbox and Windows platforms. Which is saying a lot considering Gears of War cost $10 million to develop… Read More
